Using teams of drivers, many trucking companies operate their vehicles 24 hours a day. This puts enormous stress on these vehicles and their components. If a critical part, such as a tire or brakes, are not designed properly or if they are not inspected and maintained, that part can fail and cause a serious accident.

Truck Crashes Caused By Brake Failure And Tire Blowouts
Brakes and tires are the two truck components that fail most frequently on big rigs. With regular inspections, many problems can be identified in advance and corrective measures taken. However, some trucking companies fail to maintain their vehicles on a regular basis or hold their drivers responsible for performing routine checks while their vehicles are on the road. For example, semitrailer drivers are required to inspect their tires at least once each day. By failing to do this, the driver could overlook a compromised or damaged tire that might then blow out at a critical moment.
In your case, our truck equipment crash attorneys will undertake a comprehensive investigation of the events leading to the accident. This will include an examination of vehicle inspection and maintenance records and other documents to establish the liability of the responsible party or parties. If we find that the component in question was poorly designed or had manufacturing defects, we will seek compensation from the manufacturer or other parties.
